Once again, we’ve been running “Hot Girl Friday” for nearly five months and have yet to get a local hot girl / part-time Twin Peaks waitress to submit a Chive-style selfie with the acronym K.C.O.O. (Keep Calm and Ogle On) written somewhere on her body with a magic marker.
Since we’re obviously doing something wrong, I went to The Chive and searched “Oklahoma” thinking I’d find dozens of photo galleries with titles like “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning: 27 Hot Oklahoma Girls to Start Your Day” or “27 Sooner Squishies for College Football Saturday.”
Instead, I came across a bunch of posts about Moore tornado fundraising efforts and a listicle about Linda Le (pictured above):
Alright Chivers, last week we were sent a photo of an anonymous hot chick, she became known as the ‘Boom Headshot’ girl. After we posted that pic, we received over a hundred emails from ya’ll wanting to know who she was, or in the words of Chiver Mark Arnolds, “Find her. now. And bring her to me.”
Because theCHIVE is made of awesome we’ve tracked her down. Meet Linda Le. Linda lives in San Francisco, California via Oklahoma and describes herself as a “stylist, model, nerd, and gamer junkie.” Her versatile look and Anime allure has earned her quite a cult following under the alias ‘Vampy’. Having spoken to her a couple times now, I can tell ya’ll she’s a class act, funny and smart and not a single ounce of bitchy, which is nice. But now she’s arrived at theCHIVE, the world’s biggest madhouse of judgment. So what say you, Chivers?
San Francisco via Oklahoma? That sucks. You know how local politicians and civic leaders always say that we need to come up with a way to keep young, talented, educated Oklahoma college graduates from fleeing for other states? Well, I propose we look at trying to keep some of our hot chicks, too. Seriously, every time I find a hot girl from Oklahoma for this series it seems like they were born here and then moved away whenever they got a chance. For Linda, that chance was when she was a little kid:
Born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to a family of Vietnamese immigrants, Le moved to and grew up in San Jose, California, where she graduated with business degree from San Jose State University while doing various odd jobs. She later studied hairstyling from Paul Mitchell’s the U.S. and at Toni & Guy in London as well as in Tokyo, before returning to America where she began teaching makeup and modeling. She has been dressing up as classic anime and video game characters since she was 12.
That’s from Linda’s Wikipedia page. Yes, she really has a Wikipedia page… and we don’t. Maybe we need to spend our time working on more important things than getting hot girls to write K.C.O.O. on their bodies and email us. Just kidding. We know what’s important.
Anyway, Linda apparently goes by the pseudonym Vampy. She is big on the cosplay circuit and is really popular, for obvious reasons, on Instagram and YouTube.
She’s also our Hot Girl Friday:
NewsOK’s polls are the best. They dig deep into the average Oklahoman’s psyche to see what’s on our minds, our opinions on newsworthy events, and what makes us tick. I cannot live through a day without a dose of the mind-churning reflection these questions provide.
For example, as of this moment, which is way too late, or early Friday morning, our state’s foremost news source asks us this philosophical question:
“Have you been to every county in Oklahoma?”
Did you feel that shockwave of Platonian dialogue in your chest? If you did not, you aren’t truly living. How about this enigmatic question from yesterday?
“Do you like pumpkin pie?”
I bet that one made you question your belief in God. It is said that the critical thinking skills of today’s youth are not properly tested. Yesterday, reports from this same news source said that for the second straight year, Oklahoma ranks number one in student spending cuts.
To that I say “hooray!” We should cut more. Let’s just send our students to the NewsOK poll three times a day and let their mind be blown. Heck, all we will need to provide is a cheap Acer tablet, a half-pint of chocolate milk and a fruit roll-up.
See, it’s fixed. I don’t see what all the commotion is about.
Here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.

It’s been a long off-season, but we’re only a few weeks away from the regular season tip-off of Thunder basketball. But before we get into what our team will do on the court, let’s take a look back at what the players did over the Summer, using absolutely ridiculous social media posts and my personal anger as your guide.
So, here’s the Thunder’s off-season from my perspective. At the close of last season, the Thunder had three players under contract (Durant, Westbrook, and Ibaka) that should have played very major roles on international teams in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup. I was excited, because I’m the only person in the world that really loves international basketball. Thus, I applied for press credentials and booked travel to Spain, along with travel to follow Team USA’s exhibitions. Shortly after I did that, Russell Westbrook decided not to play for Team USA. Then, disaster struck when Under Armour offered KD a lot of money, and Paul George forced KD to face his own mortality. Durant decided to quit Team USA in the middle of training camp. I was now stuck covering a team that had absolutely no relation to my Thunder-centric website. Serge Ibaka would be at the competition, but his team was staggered on the other side of the bracket, and thus at the other side of the country for the vast majority of the competition. As it would turn out, I’d never see Serge Ibaka play live.
So, how was Serge Ibaka’s 2014 FIBA competition? Well, I’d say it can be effectively summed up in this picture:
The delicious meal pictured above was recently served to a 17-year-old student at the Chickasha High School cafeteria. It’s called a “munchable” and is apparently part of Janet Barresi’s new “Eating Worse Than a Prisoner” school lunch program.
Like high school girls tend to do, the student probably posted a pic of the meal on Instagram. It then got her dad’s attention so he called Channel 5 to complain. They then pounced on the story like it was an empty carton of chocolate milk.
If our Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest ever has a soundtrack, I think it should be written and performed by the local band Chronik Kondition. Here they are performing at this year’s fair.
If they turn us down, we could always go with MC Shit Stainz. Remember him? He was a semi-finalist in this year’s contest. We were wrong, and I guess that was not a poo or chili or an Indian taco stain on his shorts. It apparently was a poo or chili or Indian taco pattern. Here’s a clip of his performance:
Enough with all that stuff. Today we have the final round of our final Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest. View the photos and vote for your favorite after the jump.
